New Delhi, May 9 -- Actor Irrfan Khan, who has received much appreciation and love from Hollywood after starring in films such as Slumdog Millionaire (2008) and Life of Pi (2012), says that Hollywood has cracked the code of making "universally popular films".
The actor, who will next be seen in Hollywood projects Jurassic World and Inferno says, "Hollywood knows that the entire world is their market now. Our film industry should be aware that they are going to take over. They are making a lot of money here. Look at Avengers, it has already earned 55 crores," he says, adding, "The audience is evolving and the more they evolve, the more they will be attracted to Hollywood. The language in their films is global."
He furtehr says, "Two things that America does best is games and storytelling. And they have somehow cracked the idea of connecting to audiences."
The 48-year-old feels that Indian filmmakers should learn from the West and work on making films that have global appeal. "We need to do the same thing. We need to find our own stories and find scripts that are unique and strong. We also have to focus on the language. We should know, how to tell a story that can be understood and appreciated by universal audiences," he says.
The actor recently returned from Budapest where he did look tests for Inferno.
